LG has launched LG Q7 as predecessor of the LG Q6 with a number of improvements but the same range of pricing. The new device becomes the only smartphone with waterproof features in the mid-range category as of now.
LG Q7 – Features
LG brings a metallic frame around the body of Q7 along with the same kind of rear cover having IP68 and dust resistance capabilities. So taking it for a light swim or exposing it to dust won’t be that big of an issue.
The LG Q7 brings a 5.7-inch panel on the front with FHD+ resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels and the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. However, the bezels can’t be described as thin but LG definitely thinks so. On the back, we have a single camera below which you will find the conveniently placed fingerprint scanner.
The Japanese tech giant has powered the LG Q7 with an octa-core MediaTek MT6750S processor under the hood with four cores clocked at 1.5GHz while another four at 1.0GHz. The graphics department is handled by the Mali-T860MP2.
LG Q7 offers the only memory configuration of 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. However, a dedicated microSD card slot sports external storage of up to 2TB. It is worth mentioning here that microSD cards greater than 512GB are not available in the market right now.
The photography department of the LG Q7 is dominated by a single 13MP sensor on the back, sported by an LED flash and PDAF features. On the other hand, an 8MP sensor is placed on the front that can be used for selfie shooting as well as video calling.
The new LG venture is fuelled by a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery unit that supports Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 features. Given the size of the screen and the processor, battery life hopefully won’t be a big issue.
LG Q7 – Pricing and Availability
Perhaps the most interesting feature of the LG Q7 is its price segment. Despite having the DTS:X features to deliver virtual 3D surround sound up to 7.1 channel audio through headphones, the smartphone is priced at $250 (~PKR 30,800).
